Suffolk Law Grad Talks Prison Reform, 1.5 Million Listen

Adam Foss JD ’08 is using some of the lessons he learned in Suffolk Law’s Defenders Clinic to build a movement for prosecutorial reform in America’s justice system. A former prosecutor, Foss delivered a 2016 TED Talk on the subject, which has since garnered over 1.5 million views. He’s teamed up with Academy Award-winning musician John Legend to build a nonprofit called Prosecutor Integrity that helps train prosecutors “using recent advances in social, behavioral, and neurological sciences.”

Originally from Miami, Kristina moved to Boston to attend Suffolk’s MPA/MS in Political Science dual-degree program straight after her undergraduate studies in Alabama.  She landed two dream jobs as a result, and currently is working to close the wage gap for 85,000 women in Boston.

“I got my dream job to work on a campaign my first semester at Suffolk. My new dream job was to work in the public sector, and now I’m managing a program that will impact the lives of Boston women. The MPA Program trains you to be a better public servant. It allowed me to develop the skills I would need to serve.”
